Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas over Labor Day weekend. Less than 30 days later, the St. Petersburg community banded together to support the Bahamian people in their most desperate time of need as they begin what will be a long road to recovery.
Sol Relief Brings St. Petersburg Community Together
A free Benefit for the Bahamas concert was held on October 6th at the Jannus Live venue in downtown St. Petersburg. Jannus Live was generous enough to donate its venue, and local bands gave their time by performing throughout the day. All donations collected before and during the concert went directly to Sol Relief as the charitable organization continues its recovery mission in the Bahamas.
Bankers Financial Corporation, the parent of Bankers Insurance Group, served as the lead corporate sponsor of the event. Bankers Financial pledged to match dollar for dollar up to the first $100,000 in donations.
Donation: The Final Numbers are in..
The concert was a huge success! Thank you to everyone who donated and for the overwhelming community support. We are thrilled to announce the final numbers are in, and we were able to raise $35,140.28, which Bankers Financial Corporation will gladly match!
